Now this I like, as it removes the "oh I'll just dump my loose change, and my ones, and any folding money left in my wallet" temptation from the odd occasion I end up in Vegas. I hate the slots, I know exactly how they're rigged, and how the money extraction process works, and yet every bloody time I still end up playing them. There's something deep and primal about the possibilty of a big reward in exchange for little effort.

some argue that casinos are using the coinless slots' efficiency to take advantage of players

No shit sherlock! The entire place is about fleecing the mark in the most efficient manner possible, and leaving them wanting to flush more of their money away.

Bah, I guess it's the ex-smoker thing. At least smoking left you with something permanent, like lung cancer. Something you could take away from the experience.
